work around for WGA issues if your computer "Has not" been effected yet RRS feed

  • Question

  • Here is how to stop this thing from ruling your "legal copy" of Windows as being "Not Genuine"


    note this only works if you "have not" been effected



    here is the work around

    1. TURN OFF WINDOWS AUTOMATIC UPDATES! turn them completly off!, no check and inform, no nothing...turn them complelty off!

    2. Disable Windows Defender from checking for update before scanning.(it uses Windows/Microsoft Update)

    3. Do not install any directx10 games

    4.stay away from microsoft download center..do not download anything that requires validation!

    5. For safe Measure"Disable" BITS(Background Intelligent Transfer Service) what Windows uses for automatic updates and what it uses to validate you each time it checks for updates


    see this thread at DSL Reports for more info




    i posted the prevent there, figured i'd lay it over here too


    just remeber once microsoft gets this worked out, turn these things back on Smile
